Selected for a forthcoming book.....


A while ago I was asked to apply for a spot in a book- snappily entitled "The State of Art vol 2-3d and sculpture"   by Bare Hill  Publishing.  Their website can be found here-

 http://www.barehillpublishing.com/wp/books/

As you've guessed it's an "Art book". Not a craft book or a pottery book- an "Art book" with lots of "funny" and odd sculpture in it- oh yes and my stuff too!

Anyway  you will probably hear me going on and on about this book in many more  posts to come! Well, suffice to say, I'm really pleased to have been selected- it seems like a strong series of books- and other "potters" have featured too- including leading Ceramicist Richard Slee among other..



VOLUME 1- I 'm going to be in Volume 2.....

An Indian adventure

Well the dust has settled now and I can tell you about a lovely opportunity  to team up with Mumbai based company, CuroCarte. FoundedbyAnanya Birla, Curocarte aims to source work by artisans from around the world to showcase their talents in an online design/retail website. From what I gather it is mainly aimed at the emerging Indian market and all I can say is that I am "chuffed" with the link up.

I was visited by Pragya Awashthi whocame direct from Mumbai to my studio and workshop. I cannot praise Pragya enough and the founding principles of the company, the website is now live and you can judge for yourself.

I have to keep pinching myself that this actually just happened. Well back to reality, back to the workshed...

GQ Magazine India

Just been told that one of my pots is featured in an article in GQ magazine India.
It gets more and more bizarre every day! It took me a while to work out what the mag actually was...stands for Gentlemen's Quarterly I think? Nice.

Meanwhile, production has ground to a halt, whilst I paint and generally clean out the workshed. Paranoid about the hazards of clay dust, I decided for health and safety reasons, it was high time.
Can't wait to get it finished and back to making,






Raku workshop

I held a Raku workshop for my Pottery class this week. Lots of fun, lots of burning...a bit too much smoke...some horse hair raku...all good fun!

It's a bit crowded at my work studio...so next time we will be holding firings at Brick House Studios in Silver End, Essex. Lots more space to make smoke and fire!

Anyway a great time had by all.
